I will admit that I did have this card made and ready to post today, as it is made with a new release from Our Daily Bread designs just released today.... but I really did want to share it with you all, and I hope it's worth the look for you! I know many do that all the time... I'm just being honest here! LOL! I hope you'll forgive me!
I used Keep Climbing to create this side step card. I stamped the image four times, masking one on the front panel so I could continue the image across the entire panel. I colored the scene with Copics and the sky with my SU! Pastel Chalks, simply sponging on various colors until I had achieved the look I wanted. I cut out the panels and adhered to my layers, giving the sense of many rows of mountains. Once assembled, I spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist which helps set the chalk, and gives a nice glimmer to the scene too.
For my sentiment panel I matted it with another piece of card stock and colored it the same way for a little extra pop, then matted that with my white card stock. To emboss my sentiment panel, since it did not fit any of my rectangular Spellbinders just right, I cut the panels and then hand embossed the border with a larger Spellbinders tall rectangle, and my embossing stylus on a soft embossing pad. My only embellishments are some little pearls and a bow made with Martha Stewart ribbon.
